bass quantity in comparison to the IEMs he mentioned, I.e. DUNU 1000 and Heaven V to me is lower. I didn't say it's not there tongue.gif
But it also depends on what source you are using, with the X3 there's more bass quantity compared to AK100, AK120 and AK240.
The V6S has significantly more bass quantity.

I don't understand what you mean by lower. There is clearly more bass quantity in the V6 than in the Heaven V. I don't think they even come close in comparison. The DUNU I am not so certain about. I just know the V6's bass is of better quality. I have to hear the DUNU again to be certain about quantity.

I don't know which part of the lower you do not understand, but what source are you using?

The V6 to me has bass when the song calls for it, but i'd still consider the V6 as neutral to bright compared to other IEMs which are considered near neutral, e.g JH13 pro.

I never stated the V6 isn't neutral, but it still has plenty of bass in quantity. Doesn't have to be basshead level. The Heaven V isn't basshead level either.

Well i guess we both have a difference in opinion. To me V6 has some bass quantity when the song calls for it, but IMO definitely not 'plenty' of bass quantity.

I am scared V6 will hiss on some high output player :confused: Is impedance adapter a good idea but it will change the sound :cool: Anyone has experience on increase ohm on the 1964 V6???:tongue:

no hiss on AK100 which has 22 ohms.

1964 goes out with 20% discount tomorrow, so I will go for some of their CIEMs as addition to my UERM and Hidition NT-6 .. I'm looking for 'reference' analytical and revealing sound. They will be used for a studio production - so no unwanted musical feelings, no early roll-offs. Flat response is main requirement, but the low frequencies has to be fully reproduced and present when the song/source calls for it. Should I choose V6? Or consider also V6S and V8?

According to 1964ears website, V6 are way to go, but I would prefer to go with V8 if they are meant to be a flagship? Anyone who can compare V6/V6S/V8 with UERM or NT-6 ? :)

V6 would be more similar to UERM and NT-6 as a reference analytical type. V6-S could be used for studio, but not as analytical as the V6. V8 is far from what your description is looking for. 

I don't consider V8 as their sole flagship, more like V6, V6S and V8 are their flagships catering to different preference.

Definitely v6 for you, imo the PRaT is better on the v6 as compared to the v6s.

Do give it a listen if you have the chance to do so.

 

By the way I haven't give the V8 a try, but apparently it's much more bassy.

Trying to decide between V6 and V6S. The V8 is also on the table, but I haven't read much about it.

I like the Shure SE535 / SE846, i.e. smooth treble / clear mids.

From what I've read people say the V6S > V6, but I've heard some say the V6S can be fatiguing which concerns me as I'm really averse to tizz / hot treble.

Maybe I should go with the V8?

Me too. Can't stand sibilant headphones either. Yet I can listen to my V6-Stage for hours on end. No tizz/hotness or sibilance added. Now I have a few tracks that that are sibilant and the remain so - the V6-Stage doesn't hide or cover it up - they play what they are given. Same with the bass, whereas the V8 has some bass boost that adds bass response beyond what's in the recording.
